A few words about the Centennial Park dedication in 1953 –

Whether by choice or by fate, No. 576 was selected to represent the thousands of steam locomotives that had powered the NC&StL Railway since its inception in 1845. Centennial Park was the logical choice for display due its location next to the company’s New Shops complex off of Charlotte Pike, allowing for panel tracks to be laid down for easy installation. The City of Nashville allotted $2,500 to construct a display site and the railroad contributed $6,000 to cover the moving costs. A diesel switcher pushed No. 576 into place in the summer of 1953, and the locomotive was formally dedicated on September 20, 1953. Because of the foresight and hard work of these individuals, No. 576 was saved from the torch’s flame and set the wheels in motion for the current restoration.
